NEWRY HIT THE SPOT TO REACH QUARTER-FINALS
Newry City defeated Carrick Rangers on penalties at the Loughview Leisure Arena to make it through to the last eight of the BetMcLean Cup.
Carrick might have taken an early lead when, after nine minutes, Danny Purkis saw a spot-kick saved by Tom Murphy awarded after he had been fouled in the box.
However Newry's Ciaran O'Connor made no mistake nine minutes later when he did find the net from the second penalty of the evening.
The home side levelled just before the hour through Kyle Cherry low finish past Murphy at the near post.
And they came close to moving in front with a quarter-of-an-hour remaining after Murphy failed to control a back pass only to be saved when the ball came back off the base of an upright.
Newry did have the ball in the net again right at the end of normal time but Salley's effort was subsequently ruled out offside.
Rangers moved in front in extra-time when Reece Glendinning struck from 25 yards in the 105th minute, but Salley levelled for the visitors with a drive into the roof of the net just a couple of minutes later.
Lewis MacKinnon then headed against an upright as Stuart King's side pushed for the winner but the sides couldn't be separated with a penalty shoot-out being ultimately required to settle the tie.
Newry proved to be clinical from the spot with Georgie Poynton, Thomas Lockhart and Salley all finding the net with only David Cushley registering for Carrick as the visitors went through 3-1 victors.
